Generally speaking, I hate them. Most are completely useless, false or filled with Christian propaganda.
But, if you’re one that enjoys these, I’ve got a gentle (or not) request.
http://snopes.com/ – a beautiful little site that verifies stories, myths and urban legends. An invaluable tool.
Seriously. Especially with this being a politically heated year. If you insist on forwarding e-mails, check the facts first. Where else in life would you spread information that could be false without checking it first?
This is largely spurned by the Obama e-mails floating around in cyberspace. You know the ones – he’s a Muslim, he’s unpatriotic, etc.
If anyone bothered to actually CHECK THE FACTS they would see it’s all bullshit. And maybe, just maybe the idiot forwards would stop.
My PSA for the day.
